Australia's largest city, world-class Sydney, is celebrated on this frosted cameo silver proof with color!

In Stock and Ready for Immediate Shipment!

SOLD OUT at the Perth Mint!


Sold out at the Mint!Sydney is the capital of the state of New South Wales and Australia's largest metropolis, but it arose from humble origins. Today's great city began as a desolate penal colony in 1788, when Captain Arthur Phillip sailed the "First Fleet" from Botany Bay to the south to a more suitable site at Sydney Cove. Despite the arrival of free settlers, Sydney expanded slowly until the discovery of gold in 1851.

The world famous Sydney Opera House, lit up at night, is a symbol of the country and continent of Australia.In marked contrast to its early existence, today's Sydney offers an enviable lifestyle, centered around the sparkling blue waters of its magnificent harbor and famous beaches. Two of Sydney's waterfront landmarks are to be found on this pure silver dollar. The unique curved roof structures of Sydney's Opera House and the graceful span of the Harbour Bridge are minted in frosted cameo relief, while above, the sky (done in the Perth Mint's proprietary - and fabulous - colorization technology) guarantees blue skies for all!

Sydney - A World-Class City
A panoramic view of the remarkable skyline of metropolitan Sydney, Australia, including the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, as seen at dusk.Sydney is the largest city in Australia, with a metropolitan area of about 4.4 million people. Approximately one in every five Australians lives in metro Sydney. The city is situated on Australia's south-east coast and is built around Port Jackson, which includes Sydney Harbour, leading to the city's nickname, "The Harbour City". The metropolitan area is surrounded by national parks, and contains many bays, rivers and inlets. A resident of the city is referred to colloquially as a Sydneysider.

Sydney is considered a true world-class city, ranked 16th among global cities by Foreign Policy's 2008 Global Cities Index. Befitting this status, Sydney was chosen to host the 2000 Summer Olympics. Sydney is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, which reflects its role as a major destination for immigrants to Australia. According to the Mercer cost of living survey, Sydney is Australia’s most expensive city, and the 15th most expensive in the world. Sydney also ranks among the top 10 most livable cities in the world according to Mercer Human Resource Consulting and The Economist.

The Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts center on Bennelong Point in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It was conceived and largely built by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who in 2003 received the Pritzker Prize, architecture's highest honor. The citation stated:

There is no doubt that the Sydney Opera House is his masterpiece. It is one of the great iconic buildings of the 20th century, an image of great beauty that has become known throughout the world - a symbol for not only a city, but a whole country and continent.

A side view of the the world famous and iconic Sydney Opera House, a symbol of the country and continent of Australia.The Opera House was made an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. It is one of the world's most distinctive 20th century buildings, and indeed, perhaps the most famous performing arts center in the world.

The Sydney Opera House is situated on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbor, close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Contrary to its name, the building houses several separate venues rather than a single opera theater, with the two main venues, the Opera Theatre and the Concert Hall, being defined by the two larger shells. The Sydney Opera House is a major performance venue for Opera Australia, The Australian Ballet, the Sydney Theatre Company and the Sydney Symphony, as well as hosting many touring productions in a variety of performance genres, and is a major tourist attraction.


The Sydney Harbour Bridge
A dramatic view of Sydney Harbour Bridge, lit up as seen at dusk.The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel arch bridge spanning the waters of Port Jackson between Dawes Point and Milsons Point. It carries rail, vehicular and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district and the North Shore. The dramatic view of the bridge, the harbor, and the nearby Sydney Opera House is an iconic picture of both Sydney and Australia. The bridge is locally nicknamed "The Coathanger" because of its arch-based design.

The Harbour Bridge was designed and built by Dorman Long and Co., Ltd, requiring 53,000 tons of steel and over 6 million rivets! It opened in 1932, and until 1967 was Sydney's tallest structure. According to Guinness World Records, it is the world's widest long-span bridge and its tallest steel arch bridge, measuring 430 feet (134 meters) from top to water level. It is also the fifth-longest spanning-arch bridge in the world.

Please note, the mint images of this beautiful proof coin do not do it justice. The fields are deeply mirrored, the relief devices are white-frosted cameo, and the deep, metallic colors of the sky above Sydney Harbor are incredible!

Technology Note
The Perth Mint of Australia employs its own proprietary colorization technology, in which the color is actually sealed on the coin. The vibrant hues and precise execution of the technology create a stunning, full-color portrait on each coin.

Obverse
A frosted cameo portrait of Sydney Harbor, featuring the famous Opera House to the left, the Harbour Bridge to the right, and the city skyline in the distance below the bridge. The legends SYDNEY and DISCOVER AUSTRALIA define the theme. The Perth Mint's "P" mint mark is judiciously placed in the harbor near the 5:00 position along the rim. The legend 1 OZ 999 SILVER guarantees the weight and purity.
